What a Dancer Can Learn from Recitals
At Nan’s Dance Studio of Raleigh, dance recitals are one of our favorite times of the year. Parents and their guests get to come and watch their children shine on stage. They beam with pride as they watch a magical performance that has been months in the making. All of the hard work and dedication are celebrated in one beautiful performance. Our students benefit tremendously from our dance recitals and learn valuable lessons that can even translate to other aspects of their lives.
Learn How To Meet Goals
A recital is a culmination of months of hard work. Students practice each week in dance class working on learning steps and then a routine. They work on that routine for months, ironing out any kinks, and polishing the routine so that it is “perfect.” Everyone is excited as the recital grows closer because they know that their hard work is about to pay off! It is the ultimate lesson on how to make a goal, work hard towards a goal, and lastly accomplish that goal.
Learn How To Work on a Team
One of the most rewarding parts of a dance recital is learning how to work as a team. Dancers work together to create something very beautiful. In order for the performance to come together, everyone must know their own part but also learn how to work cohesively. A recital is a culminating performance that everyone can be proud of and accomplishing that goal together makes it even sweeter!
Dancers may begin their dance lesson and new routine with hesitancy. Maybe they don’t believe they are flexible enough to perform the choreography or maybe they have difficulty with a certain combination of steps. No matter the reason, eventually those elements are fixed in time for the big recital, and a sense of confidence is born. What a great way to build confidence! In learning all of the routine correctly and then performing it on a large stage for all to see.
Creating Lasting Memories and Friendships
Recitals are special. Your parents and guests are in the audience, you are performing on stage with your friends, and your months of hard work are about to pay off. Knowing that the performance is going to be a wonderful memory that you will never forget. Every dancer remembers their recitals. They remember the excitement and the joy that they felt on stage. They worked hard and they got to perform for everyone to see and cherish for years to come.
